Today was another great day! I am so inspired by all of the awesome community relations events. My favorite of the day was the Wheelchair Basketball NWBA All-Star reception and clinic. Lynette Woodard, George Gervin "The Ice Man", and other athletes did a clinic for kids who are in wheelchairs. For most of them, it was the first time they had been on a basketball court. The NWBA All-Stars showed them how to play in their wheelchairs. What an experience! Each child had a smile from ear to ear as they learned how to maneuver their wheelchairs and learn techniques from the athletes. I was in awe at the skill level of the NWBA athletes! The most inspirational moment was seeing Courtney, age 6 and her sister, Katie, age 8(who would help Courtney in her wheelchair) having such a great time. Every time they did a new drill with the players, they would pass by and give me a high five.
Having an experience like today, I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a positive group of people. I was supposed to be there to help them, but they truly inspired me!
I also tried the famous New Orleans jambalaya. When I travel, I love to try local cuisine. The food down here is absolutely fabulous.
